A few days ago, you read about a flash drive with an E Ink display on the outside, allowing you to determine how much space is left without having to plug it into a PC. This is a good thing, so we’re happy to hear of similar technology coming to other storage media. In this case, a Taiwanese company called A DATA has announced that at CES 2007, they’ll be releasing the Info SD, the first SD card to feature a bi-stable display which will inform you of the card’s remaining space. Bi-stable is just geekspeak to say that the display will work without the need to have electricity applied: it’s updated once its inserted in a device, and retains its value when removed. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
